Madrid is a great place to live if you enjoy culture, night life, gastronomy and walking around the city center. The city is full of bars, clubs, parks, museums and restaurants.

A common student in Spain finishes classes around 1 or 2pm, has lunch, takes a nap and goes out in the evening to eat out, go around the city center, hangout and party on the weekends.

How much does it cost to live in Madrid?

It is relatively very cheap to live in madrid. You can rent a very good room for 400 euros and spend around 100-150 euros on food without counting eating out.

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Madrid? Is there any advice you can give?

It is very easy, there are many websites and apps. I recommend an app called Badi, it is used by many people in madrid to find roomates.

What is the food like? What are your favourite dishes?

Spain has great food. The best is the jams, cheesses, wines, and meat. And the orange juice is a gift from god.

What places would you recommend visiting in Madrid?

Walking around the city center, the plazas, the Prado Museum, the Gran Via street, Sol, Plaza de España and there are many more fun activities.

Nightlife is great. There are infinite types of bars to choose from in malasaña, chueca and sol.

What advice would you give future students heading to Madrid?

Try to meet and hangout with spaniards, because meeting a spaniard is the best way to learn about their culture and they can show you around and explain you their traditions and habits. This way you can blend in a feel like a spaniard instead of being a common foreigner.
